SPARKS, Md., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether hosting a casual dinner or a special occasion, food lovers understand that sharing a meal should always be a celebration. Of course, time and inspiration are not always easy to come by, and sometimes even the most passionate cooks need a little spark.

These all-in-one mixes provide an effortless way to experiment with new flavors, turning every meal into a memorable moment worth savoring.

Ready to stamp your flavor passport? Get a dinner party started with these new blends and recipes:

    --  Cuban Seasoning: A vibrant combination of onion, bell peppers, garlic,
        oregano and cumin, this blend adds Caribbean flair to Cuban Mojo
        Marinated Pork Tenderloin with Black Bean Avocado Salsa, in which
        succulent pork is served up with bright hits of Cuban spice and a
        citrusy salsa.
    --  Moroccan Seasoning: This Ras El Hanout-inspired blend of cinnamon,
        cumin, pepper and turmeric lends authentic North African flavor to Easy
        Moroccan Chicken, a sweetly savory take on a classic tagine featuring
        tender chicken thighs, meaty tomatoes and sweet raisins.
    --  Southwest Seasoning: Inspired by the flavors of the American Southwest,
        this versatile blend includes chipotle pepper, paprika, onion and
        garlic. The combination adds smoky heat to the flavorful crust of Fiery
        Cornmeal Crusted Steak.
    --  Tuscan Seasoning: A robust blend of garlic, Italian herbs and sundried
        tomato, Tuscan seasoning adds sophistication to rustic Pappardelle with
        Tuscan Ragu. This dish delivers the full-bodied flavor of a classic
        slow-cooked Italian ragu, with aromatic veggies, fragrant seasonings and
        Parmesan cheese.
